Foreclosure Rates Fall, Turning South Florida into a Seller’s Market

October 27, 2015 Posted by kingcade

CoreLogic’s most recent numbers show a significant decrease in the amount of foreclosures in the West Palm Beach / Delray Beach / Boca Raton market compared to last year.  The foreclosure rate in July 2014 was 4.41% and in July 2015, it fell to 2.28%, according to the property information and analytic company.  With fewer foreclosure listings than last year, it’s a good indication that people are buying homes.  In fact, the foreclosure rate in the area has been on the decline for the past 18 months.

Real estate experts say that one of the reasons we’re seeing fewer foreclosures is because banks are selling homes with the buyer in mind.  Homes are going up in value and buyers are feeling more confident making that big purchase.  The increase in demand has caused developers to build new homes and condos.  CoreLogic’s data revealed that Florida, as a whole, is behind the national foreclosure rate on average.  Sitting at 2.71% compared to 1.26% across the U.S.
